I consider Venezuela as one of the wealthiest countries you will have the luck to visit -if you do, someday- from the wildlife, the wide variety of foods, the beaches, the Ávila, the music, the arts and the countless “I got to pinch myself” to believe the accessibility I had to a place with that amount of beauty.
The value you keep for living in such beauty cannot be replaced with any material thing. And although I’m born in Caracas, I’ve spent most of my life living outside of it. And although we did move away when I was so little, my sense of self remains very closely identified with it.
If you’re Venezuelan and know where to get the following foods from, let me know: Arepas, tequeños, papas, pirulis, cheese wheez, cocosettes, Ovamaltina, colita fresca y bati bati.
